“WHEN YOUR WORLD — OR, AS IT OFTEN SEEMS THESE
DAYS, THE WORLD — IS FALLING APART, there’s perverse
comfort in watching things go smash in a safe, contained environment.
(And no, the White House doesn’t qualify.) Such is the allure of
THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG. There’s a wild, redeeming poetry
in such anarchy. MISCHIEF THEATRE HAS FOUND A WINNING
FORMULA. Whatever visions of chaos your imagination summons, the
odds are that this show’s artfully hapless team will exceed them.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY! THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG features an UTTERLY TERRIBLE fictional script executed UTTERLY TERRIBLY by a TERRIBLE group of fictional actors, enveloped in a real-life BRILLIANT script executed BRILLIANTLY by a very real and VERY BRILLIANT group of actors. You only realize you’ve been smiling, gasping, and laughing for nearly two hours when it comes to not smiling upon your return to the regular world.” – The Daily Beast
